>13'' Windows Laptop-Tablet Hybrid for Math Student

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As a math student, my main goal for my new laptop is to take notes on mathematics on it and write math on it with a stylus pen. Therefore, I’m looking into Windows laptop-tablet hybrids because I can use the hybrid as the digitised form of paper.

I’ve done some research that I present below but would like to ask for your advice and recommendations. Thank you very much!


My Requirements:

I. The diagonal of the screen must be at least 13 inches. The bigger the better, so that I can write more on a single “sheet.”

II. Screen resolution must be at least HD1080 = 1920 x 1080.

III. This is NOT mandatory, but I would prefer a detachable screen. Then I would need to bring only the tablet to lectures.

I eliminated the SONY VAIO Duo 13 because “the slant of the screen when the device is in laptop configuration, cannot be adjusted” (http://smallbiztrends.com/2013/06/sony-vaio-duo-13-tablet-laptop.html).

I eliminated the Lenovo Yoga because in tablet mode, the keyboard faces and is exposed downwards. The sales representative told me that because writing on the Lenovo Yoga on a hard surface would quickly wreck the keyboard.

Results of My Research:

1. Acer Aspire R7

2. Asus Transformer Book TX300

3. Wait for new models?

TIME Magazine says that more than 50 will be released: http://techland.time.com/2013/06/04/intel-dont-worry-many-more-hybrids-are-coming/

4. Did I miss a model that’s available and meets my requirements?

Given battery life on current Ivy Bridge hybrids, I recommend waiting to see what the Haswell refresh brings.

i'd recommend the T902 but the max resolution is 1600x900 and it's 13.3" but I wouldn't want anything higher at that screen size.

I just bought one off ebay, Fujitsu factory refurb. saved me about $1300, i5-3320m, 4gb ram, 320gb hdd, intel HD4000 graphics, modular drive bay for extra battery,hdd or dvd/cd-drive.

Oh yeah, it has dual digitizers so touch and pen input.
